We own a private residential compound with four (4) separate private units on the ground floor (a main house, a 2-bedroom unit, a 1-bedroom pool house and 1-studio unit), all with their own separate and private entrances from the gated parking area. The main house is on the second and third floors where we, Dennis and Alex live with our dog, Apollo. The pool house has all the comforts of home. It is private and cozy and you have the entire unit all to yourself. It has a full kitchen, 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, a living room with a futon-bed, bathroom, and a private back yard patio with a BBQ grill. It is equipped with AC/Heat, coffee maker, Wifi, office desk, DVD player and Cable TV.

Enjoy the tranquility of your own private retreat, with the convenience of the city life at your footsteps! This pool-house is equipped with all your needs.

Guests may conveniently self-check-in using their assigned gate code provided prior to arrival time. Simply enter your code at the gate, drive up the hill and park in the designated parking space. Follow the corridor to the right, past the pool to the rear of the complex where the Pool House unit is located. Guests are welcome to enjoy all common shared areas, including the pool and spa, as well as the washer and dryer and extra guest restroom .

Our compound has plenty of space and privacy. If you happen to come across other guests, please feel free to say hello! We love to maintain a fun and friendly atmosphere.

As we live on a hillside there are multiple levels and steps around the property, we always ask to observe caution. Please be aware that the property is not accessible for wheelchairs or other mobility devices.

Also our property might not be appropriate for children since we have a pool, multi-levels and big doggie (he is kept inside the house).

Our neighborhood is very safe and our property is very exclusive! For added peace of mind, we have security cameras by the main gate entrance and common areas.

The Joshua Tree House

The Joshua Tree House is a two bed two bath 1949 hacienda located 10 minutes from the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park in Joshua Tree, CA.

This is a place for dreamers to reset, reflect, and create. Designed with a ‘slow’ pace in mind, our hope is that you enjoy every part of your stay; from making local coffee by drip in the morning, choosing the perfect record to put on as the sun sets, or by relaxing in the hot tub surrounded by over 100 Joshua Trees and a starry night sky.

This house is very close to downtown Joshua Tree with many shops and restaurants about a 10 minute walk from the house. This also means that some sound from the highway can be heard. If you’re looking for a completely silent desert experience, we would recommend our other property: The Joshua Tree Casita (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/10614974). Please also check that listing if you can’t find the dates you’re looking for.

Welcome to the Joshua Tree House! This hacienda was built in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) With over 100 Joshua Trees on the property, the views from the house are magical. If you’re up for it, sunrise on the front porch is incredible. We estimate that some of the larger Joshua Trees on the property are as old as our country!


There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in the house, and works well for a group of friends, two couples, or small families. We can also set up an extra memory foam mattress in the hammock room (has privacy with pocket sliding doors) to accommodate groups of six. While you’re staying here, the house will be your private oasis. Feel free to explore the yard (we are on 1.25 acres). Also make sure to enjoy the Jacuzzi and incredible views from the front porch during your stay! Our driveway wraps around the back of house, so feel free to circle around the driveway rather than backing out. This house has old plumbing and has a septic system. PLEASE do not flush anything other than toilet paper. The second bedroom is detached, and is about a 10ft walk outside from the main house.

Transient Occupancy Tax – A 7% TOT tax required by San Bernardino County is included in the nightly rate. For our area, Airbnb does not yet break this down as an extra line item, but rather is included in the base price.

Pet-Friendly Cottage Near Beach 

Our quaint, thoughtfully-stocked 300 sq ft cottage is located steps from the ocean (5 min walk), yet tucked away behind our home, affording guests ample privacy, easy parking and all the amenities of home.

*PET POLICY: Well-behaved pets are welcome – we are dog lovers! However, based on over 9 years of hosting experience, we now charge a $25 cleaning fee for pets over 15 lbs, or multiple pets. This is not collected up front (via Airbnb) – you can pay the cleaning fee during your stay. (Our policy is too specific for us to build it into our Airbnb fee collection.)

The cottage comfortably sleeps 2. If your party is larger (i.e. a 3rd person, or a child) please contact us in advance to discuss arrangements, we can stash a twin air mattress or Pack ‘n Play and extra linens in the closet prior to your arrival.

Location:
5 minute walk to Asilomar State Beach, Asilomar Conference Ctr, and the recreation trail
(Bring your binoculars – almost guaranteed sightings of otters and seals, and lately, whale spouts!)

Bring your bicycles – our mild climate and stunning scenery make the Monterey Peninsula an ideal spot to explore on 2 wheels.

We *LOVE* hosting Airbnb guests – making friends from around the world, and close to home. Whether you opt to stay with us, or elsewhere, I’m confident you’ll enjoy your trip to the stunning Monterey Peninsula.

You should know a couple things
1. We are a pet-friendly property – if you suffer from pet allergies you should know there may have been a guest pup in the cottage prior to your reservation. Though we do clean the cottage thoroughly between guests, it is likely that allergens are still present. Ultimately – we want you to be comfortable, therefore we *STRONGLY* discourage booking if you have pet allergies – there are so many lovely options in the area and most are not pet-friendly. 2. Approximately once per week (usually Friday mornings) we have our weekly yard service. Sometimes the maintenance is relatively quiet (raking, trimming, etc.) and sometimes the situation is far more noisy (leaf blowers, weed wackers, fence repair, and the like).
